Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Sneaky Pete's pedal steel for Flying Burrito Brothers

How can you not love the sound of Sneaky Pete's pedal????? I've never heard a nicer tone on this instrument:

BEAUTIFUL SONG here. I hope if anyone here is from Colorado that they know this masterpiece:

Their "Wild Horses" is better than the Stones version:

The Flying Burrito Brothers played some VERY good music. Check out this Dylan cover:

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Buddy Cage pedal steel for NRPS

The post Garcia NRPS recorded three solid LPs (Powerglide, Gypsy Cowboy, Panama Red) and was a great band to see live up till 75/76 IMHO.

Buddy Cage could bring the house down on any given evening with his electrified acid steel instrumentation.

The Gypsy Cowboy

I saw them just last weekend (10/8)
at The Family Roots fest:

They absolutely fucking ROCKED. I was looking forward to
seeing them for the first time, and they exceeded expectations. That steel pedal sound sent shivers up my spine.

For the past many years they always played in nearby Bayshore in the fall, this year it is not on the calendar.

I'm bumming!! Buddy still has it as does Dave - the new guys are real tight too.

"Last of the Red Hot Burrito's" - one of my favourite 'live' albums.

Even though Gram Parsons had long gone, Chris Hillman did a great job carrying the load.

No argument ..............

If the memory serves well, the chronology was as follows;

Beach Boys > Byrds > Mamas and the Papas > Buffalo Springfield > Poco > NRPS > CSNY > Flying Burrito Brothers > Eagles > Manassas > Firefall > Linda Ronstadt > Joe Walsh.


Useless words such as genre pail in description of the classic Southern California vibe. Gram Parsons was a great talent, one for the ages!
